Duplicating a Slide Master is a little different than adding a new Slide Master from scratch. And it is a smarter option because you do not have to make the same changes all over again. Let’s explain this with a scenario. Imagine you have formatted your existing Slide Master by applying a Background Style, adding a logo, or even adding your own Picture placeholder layout. And now you want a new Slide Master that’s almost the same as your existing one — but you want a different Theme Colors set to be used. For such a small change, it is advisable that you duplicate your existing Slide Master and make the small changes instead of starting all over again with a new Slide Master.

In your presentation, a Slide Master is the element that influences everything — be it the slide background or the fonts used for text. Despite having different layouts, all slides in a presentation share a common look, which is provided by the Slide Master. There will be at least one Slide Master in every presentation. However, while adding slides from other presentations, you may end up adding more Slide Masters inadvertently to your presentation. So how do you know how many Slide Masters your presentation contains? And how do you add another one? In fact, why do you need another Slide Master at all?

When you type too much text into a smaller text box, you might have seen that PowerPoint automatically reduces the size of your text so that everything can fit in—or the text container itself increases in size. Does this automatic hand-holding by PowerPoint interrupt your work? Well, you really don’t have to worry because you can control this default behavior of PowerPoint.

Do you want your pictures to be contained within shapes that look like frames? Or maybe you want to use silhouette style placeholders for your pictures? Yes, this is possible! In fact, these custom picture placeholders were created within PowerPoint, and we used nothing that’s not part of the program.

When you bring up the Themes gallery within PowerPoint, do you find that several Themes are missing? Alternatively, do you find that your friends and colleagues have more Themes than you do? Whatever be the reason for your missing Themes, it is possible to get them back.

Slide Layouts are a very useful feature because they let you use a preset arrangement of placeholders repeatedly, resulting in consistent looking slides. And yes, you can also create your own custom Slide Layouts. While very few users create their own custom Slide Layouts, even fewer will create a custom Slide Layout for pictures! That’s regrettable since Picture Slide Layouts can make your slides look so unique.

Assuming someone has provided you with an HSL (Hue, Saturation, and Luminosity) value of a color, and asked you to add a rectangle of that color to a slide, then how do you proceed? Let’s also explore another scenario. What if you have started with a color that’s close enough to what you need, but it’s not the exact one. Maybe you need it to be a little less saturated? Again, you will benefit by working with the HSL color model rather than the RGB model.
